Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke, Elizabeth Olsen, and Elle Fanning will each grace their own individual covers of the May issue.In a statement, Marie Claire said, “These stunning women are having their moment – they all have a refreshingly unique take on the world and Marie Claire is proud to celebrate each of them and all they’ve accomplished thus far in the May issue of the magazine.”

Here are a few excerpts from the ladies’ interviews:

Lupita Nyong’o

On waiting for her category at awards shows: “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”

Elizabeth Olsen

On whether the Olsen name is a boon or burden? “Everyone has their hurdle to get over, and if mine is that I have to [prove] I’ve earned my jobs, I’m OK with that. I’m in it for a ride, and I’m in it for the long run.”
